This was very true due to the stunning designs that came out of this period. This era was centered on women, and the beauty of nature, and pieces were often voluminous.Enamel was a standard material used in Art Nouveau jewelry, as the period was more focused on the importance of design than the materials used to create it. The Art Nouveau period occurred before the start of World War I, when mass production took over the production of many products, including some jewelry. French jeweler Georges Frédéric Strass created "paste" as an alternative to diamonds in the Georgian era. Lead glass was cut and polished with a metallic powder until it sparkled like a diamond in the light. These white "diamante" or "strass" stones were very popular with glamorous Parisians, and eventually colored paste stones were made to imitate other gemstones.
